Pasadena Heritage, the second largest nonprofit historic preservation organization in California and founded in 1977, is currently seeking applicants for the position of Preservation Director.

The Preservation Director is responsible for the organization’s advocacy efforts for historic resources and preservation easement programs. The easement program currently protects more than 80 buildings, and responsibilities include annual inspections, review and oversight of proposed projects, and recruitment of new easement contracts. The Preservation Director also works with the Executive Director, Advocacy Committee, and Board of Directors on advocacy efforts, including tracking projects during the City approval process, working with developers and property owners to influence projects impacting historic resources, and regularly representing Pasadena Heritage at Commission and City Council meetings. The Preservation Director often serves as the organization’s spokesperson or representative at city commissions and other public meetings. Preparing local landmark and National Register nominations, providing technical advice and assistance to owners of historic properties, and other projects are also part of the job.

The ideal candidate will hold a Master’s Degree in Historic Preservation or a related field and have two years’ work experience in historic preservation; candidates with a Bachelor’s Degree and relevant experience will also be considered. Familiarity with historic building styles and materials, accepted preservation practices and resources, including the Secretary of the Interior Standards for Restoration and Rehabilitation, city planning procedures, and preservation easements is highly preferable. Excellent writing, organization, and communication skills are a must. 

This is a full-time position with benefits including paid health insurance and paid vacation. Some evening and weekend hours are required. The starting salary range is $43-$46,000.
